2014 mid-term elections are mission critical for conservatives
This may seem an odd statement at first glance. In 1994 a rejection of President Clinton’s health care reform resulted in a landslide victory for the GOP and a hard tack back to the center for Democrats. In 2010 we saw a similar reaction to Obamacare. By that time however the bill was already law and the House has been unable to uproot the damage. | Read More »
That Was The Week That Was #6.
In this series of weekly articles I usually cover a few of the week’s main story lines. This week, however, a large amount of time has been given in the media to the last of the primary elections… and the fallout that has followed. With only forty five days until the general election, it seems only right that I devote this page to this one | Read More »
The Old And The New.
The latest batch of primary election results yielded few surprises. After some scathing attacks on rival JD Hayworth, and a no-less-than-spectacular turnaround on immigration policies, John McCain was to cruise home with a twenty four percentage point lead. John McCain While Hayworth is a largely unknown quantity in political circles, I think it is a safe assumption that he would not have been tempted to | Read More »
Leave The Personal Insults To The Left.
South Carolina Rep. Nikki Haley achieved a convincing victory in the gubernatorial runoff, but not without having to endure the all-too-common slur campaign and personal attacks. She will now face Democrat Vincent Sheheen in November. Nikki Haley and family celebrate. What makes the story so sickening is the fact that some of the character assassinations were from Republicans. A conservative blogger, Will Folks, made allegations | Read More »

Lincoln Survives, Barely – Republican Ladies Rule California.
Blanche Lincoln barely survived a challenge by Governor Bill Halter, 52% to 48%, in her bid to win the Arkansas primary. She’s not out of the woods yet by a long shot. She still has to face Republican US Representative John Boozman in November. Actually, with Boozman polling 25 points ahead of Lincoln she has plenty to worry about. Rasmussen has him at +38 points. | Read More »
Primaries Loom Large.
Ten states states hold primary elections today, in addition to the runoff in Arkansas and a Republican Congressional special in Georgia. DeMarxists in Congress are by no means eager to press for Obama’s agenda. A lot of these folks must know by now that they are toast. Voters are in a mood to punish incumbents who they see as betraying the people’s trust by voting | Read More »
Primaries Gauge Level Of Public Angst.
‘Tis the season and Americans have the reason. The summer of discontent is about to manifest itself in a big way. I’ve referred often to the undercurrent of real anger out there, over the President and the DeMarxist Congress’s assault on our freedom. Three primaries were held this last week. Putting it mildly, it didn’t go well for the Democrats. They were not the sole | Read More »
